The Point Guard is designed to keep your Blackwing protected at all times.
Both useful and stylish, the Blackwing Point Guard is designed to ensure your Blackwing pencil gets wherever you’re going in one piece. Crafted out of lightweight aluminum, the Point Guard goes over the point of your Blackwing pencil, keeping it safe in your bag, pocket, or pencil roll. It will fit snugly on the end of your Blackwing as soon as it reaches the unsharpened portion of the pencil. This means you only need to push the cap about 60mm up the barrel of the pencil before it’s secure.

What we like about this product:
- No more getting the inside of our pencil cases dirty
- About the brand
These American-made pencils are considered to be one of the finest ever made and have something of a cult following. Discontinued in 1998, they soon became hot property on eBay with single pencils selling for $40 each. Brought back from extinction after petitions and protests in 2011, these are still made from the same Californian incense cedar with the finest Japanese-crafted graphite core. They are a dream to write with - Half the pressure, twice the speed - is their motto. The eraser tip is flat-ended for accuracy and there are three versions which differ in firmness with the standard Blackwing the softest, the Pearl medium and the 602 the firmest.
These pencils have a proud heritage and famous users include John Steinbeck, Stephen Sondheim, Leonard Bernstein and Chuck Jones, who created Bugs Bunny with his Palamino.

Does it work with other brands of pencils? I do not own any Blackwing pencils.
Bureau replies: this point guard has 8mm round opening and it will work with other pencil brands too. Hexagonal pencils will fit more securely than round ones...
